1 Soldiers of the Captain! Stand for Him, and fight,
Hardness glad enduring, armored in His might,
He is that great Victor, praised in angels’ songs,
Glory of each soldier who to Him belongs.
Soldiers of the Captain!
Stand for Him and fight,
Hardness glad enduring,
Armored in His might.
2 Leader never vanquished, more than conqu’rer too,
Through Himself He maketh all His soldiers true;
O’er the foe triumphant, He must still prevail,
So, His soldiers faithful, with Him cannot fail. [Refrain]
3 Take ye then the helmet, breastplate, shield and sword,
Thus equipped for battle ready at His word;
Fierce though be the warfare, sure is the renown,
And though dark the conflict, bright the promised crown. [Refrain]
4 Jesus, Captain! help us soldiers good to be,
Living, dying, ever fighting Lord, for Thee;
Eager to march forward, in those ranks of Thine,
Waiting but the order, from Thy voice divine! [Refrain]
